In 1998, I graduated from the Diploma Nursing Program at Georgian College, Owen Sound Campus. During my time at Georgian, I received a great education which fully prepared me for both the workplace and for ongoing learning.
The informal one-to-one time that I had with my nursing instructors was unexpected and created a situation where success was assured. Now, as a nurse leader in Ontario, I continue to see the same support and curriculum at Georgian. Georgian is continuing to keep pace with the changes in our health care environment and is implementing programs with a system wide focus and dedication to interprofessional education, a progressive strategy that will benefit our health care system for years to come. For that reason, I work to support the nursing programs at Georgian in whatever way I can.
